Postdoctoral Research Assistant - Molecular Immunology

Grade 7: £36,024- £44,263 per annum

We are seeking to appoint a postdoctoral Research Assistant to join the Molecular Immunology group. The main interest of the laboratory is to understand how bacteria are recognised and controlled by the mucosal immune system. In the laboratory we extensively use and develop bacterial flow cytometry, molecular genetics, and novel vaccination strategies to probe the major determinants of immunogenicity at mucosal surfaces, as well as the function of induced immune responses. We collaborate internationally to accelerate fundamental progress in mucosal immunology, as well as to bring relevant discoveries into clinical practice. The group places a strong focus on both personal and scientific development of our group members. We believe that training the next generation of diverse and inclusive scientific leaders is equally important as our major scientific progress.

You should hold or be close to completion of a PhD/DPhil in biological sciences and will manage your own research project independently. You should have strong organisational skills and proven ability to communicate experimental data effectively to scientists from a range of disciplines.

The post-holder will have the opportunity to work independently and will primarily be involved in developing tools to track and quantify bacterial sampling by the mucosal immune system. Experience in innate or adaptive immunity research, flow cytometry, primary immune cell cultivation and mouse handling is desirable. An ability to work collaboratively across the disciplines of immunology, microbiology and synthetic biology would also be an advantage. Enthusiasm to creatively think “outside the box” is essential. The post available as a fixed-term contract for 2 years. If you are interested in this position, and have the skills and experience we are looking for, please apply below. You will be required to upload a CV and supporting statement as part of your online application. The closing date for the applications is midday on 19 April 2024. Interviews will be held

The closing date for applications is 19 April 2024 at midday. Interviews to be held at the beginning of May.
